I’m Just Not Feeling Festive this Year

I'm Just Not Feeling Festive this Year

I don’t know what’s different this year, maybe it’s the weather or maybe it’s the fact that I am now officially in my ‘late 20’s’, but I just don’t feel Christmassy.

I’ve done some of the stereotypical Christmas things like going to a Christmas party and seeing a pantomime but they still haven’t put me in the festive spirit. I’ve watched over 10 Christmas films but not even they are working on me! I think I’m a lost cause this Christmas.

When you get older and move out of home Christmas really isn’t the same. I used to be the child that woke the whole house up at 5am to open presents before rudely getting sent back to bed to wait until at least 7am because it was ‘too early’. Now instead I am waking up with a hangover and getting over to my parents house by 11am.

I officially finish work today and am off until the New Year so maybe if I get my partying shoes on I will feel a little more festive.

Anyone got any ideas on how I can get in the Christmas spirit, or I am a lost cause?

    I'm the same and I have two little ones!!! Maybe the years gone too quick and I'm already stressing about my 2016 goals or the fact I'm
    Kinda over Xmas now. When I lived at home my mother did eveything and I was like a child again but now I'm the grown up and it's just like meh, didn't sign up for this. Maybe Xmas eve will work wonders on me. But I can relate, this year I'm not excited one bit xxx

    I'm sorry you're not feeling the Christmas spirit 🙁 I don't think it's because you're in your 'late 20's', I just think maybe you're not really feeling it this year. I felt like that last year, so I guess that happens sometimes.
    This year, I listen to a lot of Christmas music as home and when I'm out and about (shopping, sitting on trains etc). That has really gotten me in the right spirit. Maybe it'll work for you too 🙂

    Merry Christmas!
